This hotel was inexpensive, but noisy. Could hear shower, blow drier, and people talking through the walls. Lots of outside street noise at night as well. Other than that, the hotel was very nice. Small rooms, and small bathroom, helpful and polite hotel staff. It's about 15 minute tube ride to the center of London, and a 5 minute walk to two tube stations, (Bayswater and Queensway), and a 10 minute cab ride, or one tube stop from Paddington. It's also a short walk to Kensington Gardens and close to Notting Hill. The neighborhood is safe and there are shops, restaurants and pubs within a 5 minute walk. The hotel offers a daily breakfast for £7. If you're on a tight budget, it's a good hotel- just a little noisy.
